. and as has been noted, it may result in higher fares, fewer consumer choices, particularly in of and cities where to carriers over love. in retrospect, the effect of the mergers suggest that, in fact, fares did rise on some routes, where the two merger partners used to compete. given the size of the big three, legacy airlines that would remain after the merger, it's not entirely unreasonable to suggest that they would have even greater power to tacitly agree to raise prices. undermining price competition and harming consumers in the process. indeed, if american and u.s. airways were to merge, more than 70%, by some estimates as high as 86%, of the domestic airline industry would be controlled by just for airlines. i fear that the flying public will see relatively few benefits while bearing much of the cost of this potential merger. another related issue is whether the low-cost carriers can continue to provide effective, competitive pressure on what would be the big three legacy airlines, should this merger of her. .. against large legacy carriers. there's reason to wonder whether southwest

years ago i found myself sitting next to the mayor of salt lake city, and he was of a nice guy, and we started talking about what i do for a living. and i told him i work to encourage young women and girls to run for political office. why, he said, which stumped me because in my business, in my world the question of why we need more women is not a question. nobody asks why, they just ask how do we get more women there. and he went on to say, he said i have two daughters, i have a wyoming, i have a mother -- a wife, i have a mother, and what can women do in office that i can't do? which was an interesting question. and he had no idea what a can of worms he was of opening by -- [laughter] getting into this conversation with me. because i really believe that no matter how well intentioned a man in office is, his decisions are never going to be as strong as if you have men and women legislating together. and i'm happy to say that in the years since i started doing this work, the world has really come around very much to this idea. and the idea is that we need to add women to leadership not

like in the district with the college access program and city bridge, etc., there are certainly opportunities around yes which allows kids who graduate from certain cities to have their full college education paid for. again, what some on the panel have all said is how do we scale and replicate these to a far greater degree. in d.c. if you graduate from a high school, public or private, we essentially will subsidize, the taxpayers will, your going to any state college in the country and getting in-state rates. so lots of different strategies either to pay for school or to drive down costs, and i think probably lots more information needs to be disseminated but also leadership in your respective communities and what you can drive. taking some of those good examples whether it's city bridge or college access fund or the s.t.e.m. scholarship program in washington state, whatever, these are clearly doable with the right set of players and stakeholders coming together. >> yeah. that's absolutely right. we have time for, actually, one more question. so -- >> good morning. i am neil is

of salt lake city, utah. this is something very near and dear to my heart. so just to comment on this. i strongly agree with your comments on the worksite enforcement. with regard to the partnerships, to be careful about those partnerships because what's happened in some situations is those partnerships resulted in sheriffs department not wanting to fill all the obligations and those things fall back on our folks, and that dissipates when things like that happen. so those have to be very carefully structured and have to be very carefully monitored and managed spent but you don't object to the condit? >> no, not at all. what we tried to do at one point was at the agency would do the task force type situation to where they would have people working directly with our officers and agents as players. to which don't support the. however, with regard to i.c.e., we have approximate 20,000 police. of the 20,000, approximately 5000 are the immigration agents that do the lion's share of the immigration work within 50 states, puerto rico, guam, saipan. i mean, it's a tremendous workload for those 50
